Earthdance Earthdance is an arts organization and retreat center hosting workshops, artist residencies, and community programming. We are situated on unceded Nipmuc territory, in the hills of Western Massachusetts. Our focus centers is on a dynamic mix of dance, somatic, and interdisciplinary arts training, with conscious awareness towards social justice, sustainable living, and community building. Earthdance has been developing innovative arts programming, while maintaining a beautiful facility for rental groups, for over three decades.


Earthdance’s annual Spring Equinox Jam is centered around research and renewal.
As winter melts and gives way to spring, a cozy, curious, quiet atmosphere opens up for engaging in Contact Improvisation (CI) dancing and investigation.
March 17-20, 2022. Learn More HERE.
